“Exploring the outer edges of our capability is to live; not to is to let life pass by. To know one’s limits is to know oneself. What is small in one person’s mind may be big in another’s and who is to judge what is a big achievement if we have regard to the differing capabilities of individuals.

And when we have reached for the stars and obtained only the moon, we may not be happy but we can at least say that, for the moment, we have pushed forwards the frontier of human capacity and we know a little more about ourselves.”
